Biography

Bankhead, Atlanta (2000 – present)

D’Juan Hart (born January 15, 1979 in Bankhead, Atlanta), better known by his stage name Young Dro, is an American rapper signed to T.I.’s Grand Hustle Records. He released his debut album, I Got That Dro, independently in 2000 under the name Dro before signing with Grand Hustle in 2005. His major label debut, Best Thang Smokin’, was released in 2006, and his second album, P.O.L.O (Playas Only Live Once) will be released sometime in 2010.

Born in the notorious Bankhead Court housing project, Young Dro grew up the second oldest of his mother’s five boys and somewhere amongst the middle seven of his father’s 21 children. Although his mother did the best that she could to keep a roof over their heads, Young Dro spent much of his childhood drifting from one housing complex to the next.

At the age of 16, he was shot in the stomach and the back and required almost a year to recover. Dro says of the incident “I had to wear a bag for like a year… I was traumatized from that. I couldn’t laugh. I couldn’t walk or nothing”. He spent his late teens and early 20s in and out of jail. He has been writing raps since 9th grade. T.I. said of Dro, “I had been trying to sign Dro since like ‘97, before I was even trying to get a deal for myself. Anyone with ears can hear he got talent. He knows how to express himself. And while that may sound innocent, he’s also comfortable around killers. There’s something so human yet unsettling about that.”.
